MEL GIBSON'S NEXT MOVIE: THE RESURRECTION OF THE CHRIST
Mel Gibson should defy the critics who say that he cannot follow up his last religious blockbuster by following the story to its next logical step. The resurrection of the Christ could be a bigger triumph of Christian filmmaking, without the violence of the passion. Would this one shut up the Hollywood critics? Of course not! Hell, they will criticize it's Easter release date, and redouble their claims of anti-semitism, and blame it's success on the Religious Right, who are taking over America. Nothing could be further from the truth. Mr. Gibson, I want to be the first one to publicly encourage you to do the next film depicting the journey of Jesus. What you did with your first film was amazing, and I think that you can surpass it with the next one. Right or wrong, yours is an evocative telling of the greatest story of God's sacrifice for us. I am a believer in your vision, and would like to see more.
